Buy Stop Order
An order to buy a stock or security at a specific price above the current market price. This sort of order can help you avoid losses if a stock goes up a lot after a short sale.
You shorted MSFT at $24. If it goes up a lot, you don't want to be crushed. So you put a buy stop at $27 so that the most you can lose (forgetting the cost of the borrow and commissions) is $3 a share.
